Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Many folks each year always ask me about what recipe I use for roasting pumpkin seeds.
I have used the same recipe for years and years.
It came from an old work that was put together by the emloyees of the company I formerly worked at.
Each year, my boys and I roast our pumpkin seeds as they make such a tasty snack.
I see many people already carving jack-o-lanterns, however I don't recommend doing this until closer to Halloween.  We usually do ours the night before.
If you have any sunlight and warmth, your jack-o-lantern will rot and cave in and look like a wrinkled old man before Halloween even gets here.
No one wants a yucky jack before Halloween night!
We love putting a fall candle in ours on Halloween night so our whole porch smells of autumn as trick-or-treaters come up the walkway!
So without further's my recipe!

2 c. seeds, washed/dried
1 1/2 tbsp. butter, melted

1/2 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. salt

Pour in a thin baking sheet and bake at 250 for two hours or until golden brown.
